The windy road of 1431 from Cedar Park to Marble Falls has been known to be one of the more picturesque scenes of the Texas Hill County. Situated just between the northern parts of Lake Travis and the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge is a vineyard located on some pristine land. The rolling hills, landscape, and architecture has a bit of a Tuscany feel to it. You might think that you’ve stepped through a door way to a vineyard region of Italy! Established at the beginning of the 21st century, the 80 acre estate has about 20 acres of vines that blend nicely with the rolling hills. Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Muscat Canelli, and Pinot Grigio are some of the varietals grown here. From their quality wine selection, you’ll have the pleasure of tasting their famous Super Texas and their popular Blanco Brio. Do try their Bucking Horse Red which is a Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah blend. And while you’re at it, you’ll also want to try the Bucking Horse White (100% Viognier). They’ve done a very nice job with their Rose and you certainly can’t leave without sipping their wonderful Sparkling Almond wine! Feel free to roam the grounds and take lots of pictures. The Flat Creek Bistro (original tasting room) is a great place to hold an event. They often have wine pairing dinner events as well, so keep an eye out for those and give it a try. You won’t be disappointed. The stone arches of the outside Pavilion also makes a great outside venue. With friendly faces to serve you and good wine to keep your taste buds happy, this place is worth hanging out longer than expected.
